Through our teaching we aim to provide an opening into another culture. We want to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. we hope to provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to visit, study and work in other countries.
At Newton Burgoland Primary School we follow the national curriculum in England for foreign languages.
The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:
- understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
- speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
- can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
- discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
